A new book by Michael Albert is out: Practical Utopia: Strategies for a Desirable Society According to the Acknowledgements section, “The material in this book comes largely from a prior collection of three short volumes called Fanfare for the Future.” So it will not offer much new insight to readers familiar with the Fanfare trilogy. For others it may be a good introduction to ways of thinking about how a desirable society can be reached and shaped, although no time is spent on other…

A BIEN newsflash people. Every month, it's awesome. Scored the book and reading it. Awesome.

The idea, I think, because I could only get through the first few pages is that there is a better way to fund infrastructure development than the way Trump is going to. Shit, really? Whoa, pretty amazing and ground breaking. Something about public…
